Question about Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera
I turn on the camera, lens extends, camera makes a buzz-beep then beep-beep, lens retracts and a green light flashes behind the shutter button. I can see the real-life image on the screen for that split second that the lens is extended.
It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair
